Actor James Nesbitt made a special appearance in Dublin last night for the launch of a new book, 'The Grafton Barber Essential Guide to Grooming and Etiquette' by Conor and Hugh McAllister and Independent.ie journalist Caitlin McBride.

The McAllister brothers have watched the Grafton Barber grow from a basement shop on Grafton Street in 1994 to more than 40 franchises across the country today.

They have an extensive background on film sets like 'Braveheart' and 'Saving Private Ryan' and count Oscar-nominee Michael Fassbender and 'Star Wars' actor Domhnall Gleeson and his father Brendan among their clients, while President Michael D Higgins keeps a bi-monthly appointment.

They teamed up with Ms McBride, one of Ireland's leading style journalists, to create this book, utilising the expertise built over years of experience to share with men of all ages.
